Top Stories: Plamen Georgiev appointed consul to Valencia. Bulgarian citizens launch a petition against him Plamen Georgiev, the former head of the Anticorruption Commission was appointed as consul to Valencia, in a surprise move by Bulgarian authorities. Georgiev finally resigned his post at the commission after several-month long leave of absence, during which he was investigated for inconsistencies in his tax returns and for turning a common space in his apartment building into a terrace for personal use. He became one of the prominent cases in the so-called ApartmentGate scandal, which uncovered a number of instances of high-ranking officials striking real estate deals on a fraction of market prices. When Georgiev handed in his resignation, he announced he plans to return to work as a prosecutor. The Supreme Judicial Council appointed him in the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office. Just four days later, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs appointed him as consul to Valencia. Georgiev has no prior experience as a diplomat. The foreign minister, Ekaterina Zaharieva hasn’t given any reason for the decision, which arguably is hardly hers. A ministry official told the Bulgarian National Radio, that Georgiev is a good fit because he has had good working relations with law enforcement agencies in Valencia. The official did not elaborate or pointed to any concrete examples of when and how these alleged relations flourished. As an added bonus (which in the case of Bulgarian diplomats, it often is), Georgiev knew Spanish. According to his own resume, which he submitted to Parliament in 2018, he has completed level A2 Spanish. As soon as the news broke, however, the Bulgarians living in Valencia reacted sharply. They launched a petition against Georgiev’s appointment, which by Friday 1:00 P.M. was signed by over 1800 people. One of the authors of the petition told BNR that the protest against Georgiev is not motivated by the scandals in Bulgaria but is based on the lack of experience and knowledge one should possess in order to take such a post. Bulgarians in Valencia are also planning a protest when Georgiev arrives. PM Boyko Borissov has a habit of appointing close former officials to diplomatic missions. And it seems Georgiev’s case is also in this tradition. It is unclear what prompted the decision mere days after Georgiev was appointed as prosecutor. For some reason, Borissov might have become concerned with public disproval of Georgiev and the way his case was processed, and ultimately decided to early-retire him abroad. Whatever the underlying cause to pull back on the prosecution job, the care Georgiev receives by this government is evident of how important and serving he was during his time as head of the Anticorruption Commission. The body, tasked with fighting high level corruption has made no convictions or uncovers of corruption by anyone from those in power. Instead the commission under Georgiev has ..
